5:03 am
leave after reportedly telling students they'd soon be deported under a trump presidency. that teacher works at oak grove high school in san jose. now a student who does not want to be identified tells nbc bay area this all happened last wednesday. she says she and her friends decided to sit during the national anthem at a school-wide rally in protest of what she calls donald trump's rhetoric and poxes on immigration. she says the teacher told them to stand, and when they didn't, the student claims the teacher got frustrated and said this. >> good luck with being deported now that donald trump is president. you guys had it better here than you will over there. i was actually shocked and angry because i never thought i'd hear this coming from a teacher. >> the east side union school district would only say a teacher at oak grove is on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation. the student hopes the teacher is going to be disciplined.
5:04 am
we reached out to the teacher for comment and have not heard back yet. police in alameda are hoping someone saw a man who two girls attempted to grab them as they walked to school yesterday. police say the two girls age 7 and 10 were on the sheffield way walking path yesterday morning when a man in all black tried to grab one of them. the girls ran to a nearby home unharmed. investigators are looking for more information. they hope someone might have seen something and will call them. police say a confrontation over a pot grow is what led to an early morning shootout. investigators say at about 1:30 a.m. yesterday two or three burglars went into a home in the irving ton neighborhood of fremont, and at least eight shots were fired when they encountered the growers. police say one man was hit in the shoulder. even though the grow is illegal, so far no arrests have been made. there's a large reward to help catch the gunman who shot at two san jose police officers. we covered this yesterday
5:05 am

5:06 am
used in a way that includes benefits to the very communities who have been hardest hit? >> many cities already have permit systems in place which makes it attractive for current pot club owners to move. happening today, it is not a question of the but when. the san jose city council is going to be debating a timeline for raising the city's minimum wage. it's part of a regional south bay plan to raise wages to $15 by 2019. 13 cities in santa clara county endorsed the plan back in june. it would outpace the state's minimum wage jump of the same amount in several years. san jose is the largest of those cities. according to groups advocating for the quicker raise, it would impact about 250,000 workers. a settlement could be reached as soon as today in a looming legal brawl over parking between the sharks and the city of san jose. the sharks sued to block a new
5:07 am
development near diridon stat n station. that will have office and retail space. the sharks argue they would lose 835 parking spaces right by the shark tank. city leaders today plan to approve a settlement. that deal includes spending $4 million from the developer to buy nearby properties for parking spaces elsewhere. san francisco transportation leaders today will debate more tweaks to the city's shuttle program. some critics are calling for fewer designated stops and more of a hub-type pickup and drop-off system. one study suggests fewer stops will mean more shuttle bus commuters driving their own cars instead. the mta is not expecting to make a decision today. university and startup called arrow robotics are launching a pilot program for free shuttleless drivers. the shuttle can transport three people at a time. it will drive in a loop and make five stops throughout campus.
5:08 am

slowing from fish ranch to the bay bridge, just seven minutes. 5:12. hundreds of high school and middle school students in oakland are protesting the election results. they marched and chanted from jack london square to city hall ending in the fruitvale district. students from menlo atherton high school marched from el camino and into palo alto. both protests were considered peaceful. president elect trump's transition is starting to take shape. >> he's already taking quite a bit of heat over one of his choices. tracie potts joins us from washington with more on his possible cabinet picks. >> reporter: right now steve bannon is the cabinet choice or i should say the white house pick that's raising a lot of eyebrows here on capitol hill. he has had ties to white
5:14 am
nationalist groups, but he will also now have the ear of the president. >> criticism is pouring in on president elect donald trump's choice of steve bannon as strategist. >> the fact that republicans have been silent on bannon's appointment is a disturbing sign. >> reporter: bannon's breitbart site is popular with extremisex. >> very smart man. >> i looks forward to having a discussion. >> reporter: president obama declined to weigh in on bannon but giving president elect some advice on how to deal with a divided nation. >> how he signals his interest in their issues or concerns, i think those are the kind of things that can set a tone. >> reporter: including points that mr. trump's campaign finance chair is being considered as treasury secretary. >> a lot of hard working going on upstairs.

5:16 am
sites. they won't prohibit the sites from showing up on your feeds. you're going to have to deal with that, but it is a good first step. during the election buzzfeed figured out many of the fake news items you saw in your facebook feed were authored by a groupmacedonia. they weren't trying to influence the election, just trying to get people to click on the articles to make money. they knew if they wrote something outrageous, that would work. the ave. raej rate for a 30-year mortgage hit 4%, the highest it's been in years and years. the reason, it's tied to treasury bond yields and the donald trump rally on the stock market. my boss would kill me if i took the ten minutes it would take to explain the relationship. you're going to have to take my word for it. let's check the rest of the news before the bell with landon dowdy at cnbc world headquarters. >> complicated over here on wall street, but not for the dow. up six days in a row, begins at a fresh record high 18,868.
5:17 am

at a ten-day forecast. that's how things are shaping up right now. cloudy skies around san francisco. not much in the way of fog. san jose 59 degrees, cloudy skies. north bay -- once again north of belvedere, you can see san francisco looking south. we have patchy fog, visibility at times down to a your kwa ter mile. napa out by the airports, .25 visibility, santa rosa, .50 mile. we have more overcast skies as opposed to the ground level fog. no widespread rain just yet. this will be progressing south into the north bay later this morning and then around lunchtime, beginning to see it cross the peninsula and the system does fall apart by 3:00 this afternoon. still plan on a few scattered showers around the south bay with mostly cloudy skies today. rain totals underwhelming. less than .10 inch for most of the bay area. some spots not seeing anything. this is helping to break down the ridge of high pressure followed by stronger systems in the seven-day forecast that will bring much more rain especially
5:21 am
by the weekend. mid to upper 60s around the south bay. 67 in livermore, mid 60s around peninsula. the north bay highs only in the low 60s. so the pattern change we're seeing now, a chance at just a few showers. cold system, you'll notice that thursday morning as the lows dip into the 30s and 40s. saturday, that is when we think we can see as much as a half inch or more. notice the north bay could see two to three inches of rain. that's going to go through saturday, sunday and monday. we're talking about a few showers that may try to last into sunday. this is a cold weather system setting the stage for wetter and windier weather this weekend. >> right now the roadways are moving well. watching the drizzle in the north bay and west of the city. we have no major problems on the roadway. that is an alarm for folks traveling westbound. reports that one lane was
5:22 am

5:32 am
allegedly telling students they would soon be deported under trump's presidency. this is a story we first brought you at 11:00. >> "today in the bay's" kris sanchez live at oak grove high school with what students are saying this morning. kris? >> reporter: apparently a lot of the students are talking about what happened last wednesday, the day after the election when there was a school-wide rally. we did reach out to the teacher in question here to get their side of the story, but we have not gotten a response back. what we can tell you is how the student describes what happened at that rally. again, it happened on campus, the day after donald trump's election. a student who does not want to be identified tells us that she and her friends chose to sit out the national anthem in protest, she says, of trump's rhetoric and his position on immigration. she says the teacher asked her and her friends to stand and when they didn't, she says that teacher said this: >> good luck with being deported now that donald trump is president. you guys have it better here
5:33 am
than you will over there. >> i was actually shocked and angry because i never thought i'd hear this coming from a teacher. >> reporter: we did reach out to the east side union school district. they will confirm that the teacher is on paid administrative leave as there is an investigation on going. we're hoping they might divulge what the investigation, what the outcome is at some point. but this is not a criminal act, and so there are no charges filed. we will not name the teacher at this point. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> kris, thank you very much. happening today, more than 150 protests are planned nationwide against the da colt th-- dakota access pipeline. in san francisco people plan to gather in just a couple hours to protest and march against the pipeline. they're meeting at 6:30 at the army corps of engineers office
5:34 am
in civic center plaza and then at 4:00 p.m., demonstrators are meeting in front of the wells fargo in mountain view. today the san jose city council will discuss a plan to raise minimum wage to $15 in just three years. "today in the bay's" bob redell joins us with the details. this certainly could impact hundreds of thousands of workers. >> reporter: correct. good morning, laura. over 100,000 hourly workers will eventually see their minimum wage go up to $15 an hour. it's just a question of when. that's the issue that the san jose city council will be discussing later today here at their meeting in city hall. right now city staff is recommending the following schedule, raising the minimum wage to $10.50 this upcoming january. 12 bucks the next january. $13.50 january of 2019, $15 by january of 2020. the state of california is requiring all localities to raise their minimum wage to $15
5:35 am
by 2022. you can see san jose would be ahead of the state schedule, but the city association of santa clara county which san jose is a part of, has already agreed to hit that $15 minimum by 2019, not 2020 which, as i mentioned, san jose is considering. you can see why the san jose city council is feeling pressure to speed up the schedule. according to a uc berkeley study put out this summer, the minimum wage increase across all cities in santa clara county would help 250,000 workers with what would be the equivalent of a nearly 20% bump in pay. the study also notes that over 1,300 people would lose their jobs during the phase-in. so the city council will discuss today, can vote on a minimum wage after the thanksgiving holiday. later today outside city hall, hourly workers, labor and community groups will hold a news conference to pressure city leaders again to raise that minimum wage to $15, not by
